      Fun day in Brooklyn!
      Herrick_N, Apr 2024
      Walking across the Brooklyn bridge and Scott's wonderful commentary on the history of the area. We saw some lovely old Brown Stones and enjoyed learning more about the areas of DUMBO and Brooklyn Heights
      Super cool tour
      Melissa_A, Apr 2024
      Scott was such a good tour guide! Our family had a blast. We definitely recommend this tour for anyone looking for a unique experience!
      Awesome tour!
      Carolyn_C, Mar 2024
      Scott is a fantastic tour guide and I highly recommend this tour. Lots of detailed information and fun facts throughout the tour.
      "Scott Knew It All & then Some"
      DanielA_T, Mar 2024
      We parked our rental in Brooklyn Heights, but had to ask Scott what train to take and he provided all the details to find him. Great start! Personally I was knowledgeable of the Brooklyn Bridge as well as Brooklyn Heights, yet Scott included so much more details making the experience even more memorable. The highlight was that I walked across the Brooklyn Bridge finally. As many visit to Brooklyn and as many times as I drove over the bridge never had I walk it. It was and will continue to be an experience to remember.
      Scott was a great tour...
      Francine_H, Mar 2024
      Scott was a great tour guide! Very knowledgeable of the area and let us take our time for photos and such.
      Response from Host, Mar 2024
      Thanks Francine. I enjoyed showing you around. Hope you enjoy the opera and don’t get too waterlogged today.
      Great introduction to Brooklyn
      dmacfarlane2010, Mar 2024
      Great tour with Scott over Brooklyn Bridge, around DUMBO, and ending in Brooklyn Heights. It was a lovely walk. The pizza restaurant, Julianna’s, he recommended was amazing. Thank you Scott
      Without a doubt, yes!!!
      Joan_S, Mar 2024
      Although it was a rainy day in NYC, it didn’t dampen our enjoyment of learning about the Brooklyn Bridge, DUMBO, Prospect Heights and more. We thoroughly enjoyed walking through Brooklyn with Scott. He provided us with tons of information and facts and also had great lunch recommendations to boot! Plus, he’s a great photographer!
      Great experience!
      stephanie_d, Feb 2024
      Scott was so informative and made the walk so much more interesting than if we had done it solo. Would recommend!

      Scott was friendly, professional and informative, answering all our questions. He gave us some great advice for the rest of our touring day. I would take a tour led by Scott anytime.
      John was excellent!
      Natalie_R, Dec 2023
      John was an excellent tour guide! Very knowledgeable and helpful. Would definitely do it again and finish off with pizza at Julianna’s on Fulton. Awesome!
      Awesome time with the walking tour.

      Awesome Brooklyn Bridge Tour
      Victoria_S, Dec 2023
      We thoroughly enjoyed this tour! We were so excited to see the Brooklyn Bridge, and it did not disappoint! Scott was an excellent guide with a wealth of knowledge! He pointed out locations where some actors lived and talked about recently sold homes/apartments and the prices they sold for (wow)! At the end of the tour, we said we were going to eat pizza, and Scott recommended a place. The pizza was awesome! If you want to see/walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, this tour is definitely for you!
      Beautiful day out
      Lauren_S, Nov 2023
      Scott is an amazing guide who will take you on a beautiful walk that boasts some of New York's most iconic views/sites. My mom and I enjoyed this tour very much.
      Awesome tour.

      Everything that Scott had shared with us. The Brooklyn Heights. The Waterfront. The history of the bridge, Brooklyn, Waterfront.
      Scott was a great tour...
      Aakanksha_J, Aug 2023
      Scott was a great tour guide and very knowledgeable about the areas. He had answers to all of our questions. The path he took us on was beautiful. We wouldn’t have thought to go to certain regions had it not been for the tour guide. Loved the little celebratory homemade lemonade in the end!
      Go on this tour!
      Deborah_F, Aug 2023
      We loved this tour! Scott had a wonderful store of knowledge about the history of Brooklyn, its historical, renovated and new buildings, and the people who lived there now and in the past. He took us to areas we would not have known to go to on our own.
      Best views and great company
      cecilia_p, Jun 2023
      Scott was very knowledgeable! He had first hand knowledge being a resident himself. He answered all of our questions and made us feel considerable. At the end of the tour he even gave us fresh home made lemonade that he made himself. It tasted amazing!
      Amazing experience loved it
      Cameron_B, Jun 2023
      This was one of the best tours we have ever done. My wife and I were visiting from Australia and our tour guide Scott was able to share lots of local knowledge of the area, talk to us about how much the area has changed and show us some the best spots for photos of NYC. It was amazing walking over the Brooklyn bridge and seeing the sites of Brooklyn - Brooklyn is a beautiful neighbourhood. Highly recommend this tour!!!
      Highlight of an NYC visit
      Autumn_W, Mar 2023
      Anyone can read the history of a place they visit - but Scott is one of the few tour guides who puts history in full context, up to the current moment. His knowledge of the Brooklyn waterfront (in fact, of New York on the whole) is extensive, but it's his storytelling, charm, and dedication to giving you a great experience that makes this a tour worth taking. A highlight of a visit to NYC for sure.
